Inglorious Bastards: Preview and Review

The upcoming release of the Inglorious Bastards starring Brad Pitt is actually a remake of the 1978 Italian Film Quel maledetto treno blindato (literally translated as That damned armored train and released as Inglorious Bastards in the USA).

The plot of the original version centers around a group of American prisoners who are in the process of being shipped off to prison for their various crimes. On the way to prison, their transport is hit by a German Stuka, killing most of the MPs enabling 5 of the prisoners to escape.

The fugitives then decide to make a run for the Swiss Border and freedom. Somehow along the way they end up volunteering for a commando mission to steal the new prototype gyroscope for the Nazi V2 Rocket with help of the French Ressistance. The team must find a way to sneak onto the most heavily guarded train in German territory, steal the Nazis' most precious military hardware, and bring it back to the Allies without getting arrested again by their own side.

The new Brad Version is much different. Just wait and see.
